Who Sees a Great Future for
American Iron and Steel
- . ^
Than Tlicy Ought to be ?They arc 1
High Enough, he Says, to Crowd r
American Manufactures out of r
Sonic of the Foreign Markets ? He r
Believes Prices for Iron and Steel
Products Will Decline. 1
According to R. Wlgram, a leading *
English maker of machinery, agrlcultural
Implements and road locomotives, \
at Leeds, who Is In Pittsburgh this i
week, the high price of iron and steel J
manufactures at present prevailing in j
this country have practically closed the r
English market to that most important
^ of American industries.
Mr. Wlgram cites his own case as a
5 striking example. Said he, In the course j
' of an Interview In the Dispatch, "I came
n to this country, and particularly to
Pittsburgh, with the expectation of j.
placing some large orders for machinery
and raw material, but found the '
prices, plus transportation, higher than l
In England, and therefore shall make
my purchases at home."
.Another case in point cited by Mr. <
? Wigram Is the order for many thou- j
sands of tons of steel, to be used In the ,
construction of the new Uganda railway,
now being built in North Africa. ^
TKIn flnlnf uhnnl.l hnv? ?V,., 1
United States, and very probably to
Pittsburgh, but the English government
found that it could buy Just as <
cheap, if not cheaper, in the home
market, and that is where the order
was placed. 1
In Mr. Wlgram's opinion, it is not
likely that the American iron and steel
market will be able to maintain Itself
i for any great length of time. He says
he has been a close observer of the iron
and steel trade for upward of thirty
)- years, and that history always repeats
itself when prices go up like skyrockets. ,
I He does not mean to Imply that the
l~ present prosperity in all branches of industry
and commerce is a mere soap
)r bubble, that will ere long dissolve into
the air, leaving a dark brown taste in
the mouth of the nation, but, on the
contrary, admits that the good times
have been brought about by natural
causes, and will last indefinitely if
prices are held within reasonable
bounds?that is within the limits which
would effectually close the foreign markets
to our manufacturers. i
One nf the arguments used by Mr.
Wigram to prove the correctness of his
r views Is that the home market, not only
of Iron and steel, but of all other raw i
materials and manufactures, the prices
A of which would have been rising in
bounds, would sooner or later become glutted,
and that the manufacturers
II would be compelled to again look to foreign
countries to take their surplus
products, a situation which would nat
urally result In a sharp decline of
prices. "We have had the same thins
happen in England," he added, "with
disastrous results. When prices rise .
so high that they represent a Ilctitious ?
value, the time is not far off when they will
take a tumble.
"In the very nature of things, your ?
prosperity will last a long time if man}
ufacturers do not lose their heads, and i
in their eagerness to make up for years _
of poor business, leave the safe paths
of conservatism. You've had your
a- seven lean years, and the seven fat years
will follow. In the seven lean 1
years no man bought more tharv, was
absolutely needed to carry on his buslhe
ness, and many manufacturing con- I
cerns ceased operations altogether beLj_
cause they were unable to ilnd a market
for their products. Now the demand
for all sorts of manufactures, esT_
pecially the products of the Iron and
jj. steel industry, is greater than the supply.
Hence, the unprecedented rise In
?d prices.
"And the causes are not far to seek
ir' or hard to find. In the first place, your
0? farmers have been very prosperous for
several years. They have had good
. crops, and been getting good prlcees.
Then, many new railroads are building,
and the established roads are improv
ing their equipment, laying new roads
and adding to their roiling stock to
meet the increased demand of the carrying
capacity. Your 'successful war
J? with Spain has not only given you
. greater confidence In yourself, but put
j3 hundreds of millions of dollars in cira"
culation that have gone into the pockets
of your manufacturers and workingmen.
Your new colonial possessions
1111 are already making demands upon your
'" industries, and will continue to do so
;00 in ever-increasing measure.
,s" "These are some of the chief causes
of your prosperity, and very interesting
they are for a foreigner to contemplate.
Combined, they form. Indeed, a solid
nt and lasting foundation. But. as I have
said, the superstructure must be built
with care, or it may grow top-heavy,
;rs and fall under the first 111 wind that
of may happen to come along."
^ Herrick to be President.
Q~ CLEVELAND, Ohio, March 29.?It I?
said Col. Myron T. Herrick, one of the
receivers of the "Wheeling & Lake Erie
railroad, which Is about to be reorgan>es
ized, has been offered the presidency of
the company when hi.? duties as re'y.
celver cease. It Is understood, however,
us that Mr. Herrick has declined the offer,
and will sever all otficlal connection
with the road as soon as the reorganization
has been effected. Colonel Herrick
and Robert Blickensderfer have been
II. the receivers for the "Wheeling &. Lake
Erie for several years past.
Ir* Fomo of the most annoying features
that nctors have to contend with are
,c_ the cries which sometimes come from
v- noisy wags In the house. These usually
provoke the mirth of an audience, but
are demoralizing to the nerves of the
persons at whom they are directed. One
of the most amusing of these experiences
Is told by W. 11. Mack, of the
"Town Topics" company. The incident
occurred In the course of a scene in
"Richard the Third," between Edwin
Booth, ns Richard, and Miss LoduskI
x- Young, as Lady Anne. Richard had
Hy offered his sword to Kathorine and on
bended knee besought her to kill him If
she -would not pardon the wrongs he
had done her. Anne with the sword in
her hand raisod her eyes towards the
iR gallery and exclaimed: "What shall I
do? Direct me, Heaven." In a boyish
,n voice <the answer cntne down from one
' of the nut-strewn seats of "heaven,"
"Stick him." At the Grand first half of
